This case involves an elderly female who had become a resident of a retirement community after being diagnosed with dementia. The Plaintiff had been living at the nursing home for several months before family members began noticing signs of apparent neglect. In addition to signs of malnutrition, a number of large bedsores were noted by family members. These bedsores quickly became infected, prompting nursing home staff to take the Plaintiff to the hospital. At the hospital, the Plaintiff received antibiotics and wound debridement, however she eventually died. It was alleged that the nursing home had been grossly negligent in allowing the woman’s bedsores to progress to such an advanced stage without any apparent attempt at seeking medical care.
